Assessing Critical Thinking: A College's Journey and Lessons Learned
Peach, Brian E.; Mukherjee, Arup; Hornyak, Martin
Journal of Education for Business, v82 n6 p313-320 Jul-Aug 2007
The business college at University of West Florida is currently in the throes of implementing an assessment initiative to develop student learning outcomes, design assessment devices to measure learning, analyze the measurement results to identify learning shortfalls, and establish feedback mechanisms to modify the curriculum to address the shortfalls. The authors reflected on the current state of the process, including initial findings and corrective actions taken, and compared the lessons learned about assessing critical thinking and assessment in general with results found in the literature.
